I'm a computer scientist working at Oculus Research and living in Seattle. My research interests span computer graphics, novel sensing, and human perception.

I hold a PhD from the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. I did stints as a mouseketeer at Disney Research, Jedi in training at Industrial Light and Magic, and visiting student at the Max Planck for Biological Cybernetics in Tuebingen, Germany. I graduated Magna cum Laude with a BA in Computer Science from Mount Holyoke College. In Romania, where I grew up, I used to have a lot of fun with math olympiads and attended the International Computer High School of Constanta.
